I have never had a problem before but I guess I let my guard down, The darn coon got just the neck skin and a little nibble of the breast, but it was enough to send Mr T to Turkey heaven. I did process him but i don't think I will partake of his bounty, Rabbies has got me wondering, and he never bled out ,so i am not chancing it. My trap is set now though, I'll get that sucker, @#$%* anyway a pretty crappy day. The thing is i was planning on giving Mr T to a very nice friend I met on the BYC as a gift, she really wants a Turkey and i thought I would surprise her, she's a great Gal. Anyway I guess it is off to the store for some hardware cloth tomorrow.

I am sorry to hear about Mr. T. My aunt lost most of her chickens this year to a racoon, but she finally caught the sucker.

It is really amazing at how cunning they are, I stood there for a long time and tried to imagine how this coon planned his attack. they are very very smart. but I am smarter, I think hehe.
